Estibio has developed Pentocrobe® 463X to enable glucose, xylose, and arabinose co-fermentation.
Estibio’s fermentation process overcomes a major technical constraint for second generation bioethanol (2G) bio-renewables by enabling the efficient conversion of complex five-carbon sugars from lignocellulosic feedstock to produce 2G bioethanol.
Pentocrobe® 463X Features
Deletion of the lactic acid and acetic acid pathways
High ethanol productivity on glucose, xylose and glucose/xylose mixtures
No heterologous genes inserted
Primarily for use on lignocellulosic feedstocks
Can be mixed with Pentocrobe® 463S for mixed fermentations
